of the nra itself agree -- support universal background checks. it's just wayne lapierre and his corporation cronies who are against this. >> we have got to fight them. >> and then he's using every fear tactic and trying to push buttons. he wrote this bizarre, offensive piece in the daily caller saying -- and i'm quoting the piece. after hurricane sandy, the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia. there was no food, water, electricity. and if you wanted to walk several miles and get supplies, you better get back before dark or you might not get home at all. what is he tauxing about? latin american drug games have invaded every city of significant size in the united states. so latinos, rye yots, they're coming to get you. this is shameless. >> well, it's fear mongering. and it's also actually untrue. that did not happen in brooklyn after the hurricane. so it is fear mongering. and it's the type of thing we really have to stop. he has spent his entire career trying to stop the sensible gun controls. as i said in luther king and malcolm x, congress came together and passed reasonab
